Springtime in Phoenix…it goes faster than you’d like. One minute it’s a glorious 65 degrees and the next minute we’re already in the 90s. That’s why Long Wongs AZ Famous Wings, a family-friendly sports bar in West Phoenix, has put together this blog post, so you can take advantage of these 5 activities in Phoenix before the summer temperatures shut us indoors.
1. Hit the Trails
There’s no better time to be outdoors in Phoenix than in spring. The mountains and valleys are covered in green—a rare sight in the desert; The cacti are blooming; And the temperatures are near perfect.
That makes it an ideal time to hit the numerous, gorgeous trails that are scattered throughout the Phoenix Valley. Whether you choose Camelback, South Mountain, McDowell Mountain Range, or any other trail, be sure to pack plenty of water: and bring your pooch along too!
2. MLB Spring Training

And for the adults out there, don’t miss the Four Peaks Beer Garden with 200 specialty beers and local microbreweries.
4. Resort Day Passes
As temperatures begin to hover around the 70s and 80s, it’s a great time to grab a day pass and lounge by the pool at one of the many amazing resorts around the Phoenix Valley. Whether you have a pool or not, this is one of our favorite ways to enjoy a mini-staycation.
